Inherit the Wind (Stanley Kramer, 1960) BY: David John Seel, Jr. Inherit the Wind is the fictionalized account of the 1925 Scopes Trial; which served as the low point of Christian cultural influence, a Pyrrhic legal victory that marked the end of Protestant cultural hegemony.
Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture (Editor Thomas C. Oden, 1998) BY: Denis Haack The Ancient Christian Commentary series is such an important resource, since it allows us to listen to commentators from the period of church history which up to now has been, for most of us, largely shrouded in silence.
The Challenge of Jesus: Rediscovering Who Jesus Was and Is and Jesus and the Restoration of Israel (N.T. Wright, 1999) BY: Denis Haack If some books are difficult to market, I would suspect The Challenge of Jesus might fall into the marketing department category for “nightmare.”

Bad Religion, The Process of Belief (2002) BY: David John Seel, Jr. The Process of Belief is not a concept album with a unified theme, but it is a call to question skepticism and taken-for-granted beliefs, and an appeal to rationality.
Eminem, Marshall Mathers (2000) BY: David John Seel, Jr. It is impossible to understand youth culture, particularly contemporary pop music culture, without addressing the significance white-rap-MC Marshall Mathers better known by the stage-name Eminem as well as by his angry alter-ego alias, Slim Shady.
I love my neighbor as myself but only because I don’t much care for myself.

This web site is old and creaky. The email function functions poorly when it functions at all. Worse, it all looks old. So we are starting work on building a new site, and hope to have it functioning by fall.
Our vision will not change, nor will our attempt in this little spot of the Internet to invite you to join us in thinking about the things that matter most. Thanks for visiting.
